A Few New Pots

I'm very lucky to have my own kiln so that I can fire during these difficult times.  Here are a few pots from this last firing.

Very coarse sculpture clay that tolerates cone 12 flat at the front.
Serving plate with slip, stamps and ash glaze.

Coarse clay again with stamps and slip.
Utensil holder.

Back of the kiln blue ash glaze.

Unloading


The kiln was unloaded today.  An OK firing, nothing stellar, a bit of bloating and one weird crack.  Photos to follow.

Second stack.

Firing

A perfect day for the firing - mostly overcast, bits of sun, not too cold.
